If you ask my kids what they’re favorite dessert is they will tell you, hands down, it’s dirt cake. I don’t tell many people this fact because I get paid to bake yummy desserts with unique flavor profiles and, at the end of the day, my kids prefer boxed pudding and Oreos all crushed up together with some gummy worms slapped on top.
So that’s a little embarrassing.
But, if you can’t beat ‘em… join ‘em. For St. Paddy’s day I thought I’d surprise them with a green version of their favorite snack. The “dirt” for this cake is Lucky Charms, and I used pistachio pudding mix for the green layer but, never fear, I doctored it up so the end result is anything but nutty.
You can make these a day or two ahead of time and they won’t get mushy. Just cover and chill them and they’ll be perfect for your lucky day!
